In search of a left piston, OM have made Darko Lazovic their priority and have already reached a contractual agreement with the 31-year-old Serb.
Igor Tudor’s basic man at Hellas Verona last season, Darko Lazovic is Olympique de Marseille’s new priority in the transfer window. The Marseille club, which formalized the arrivals of Luis Suarez, Jonathan Clauss and Ruben Blanco on Wednesday, is now attacking the Serbian from Hellas Verona. An agreement has been reached between OM and the 31-year-old left piston on the basis of a three-year contract. The positions of the Marseille club and Hellas Verona are also very close with a transfer estimated at 4 million euros… plus Kevin Strootman. And it is precisely there that the operation blocks because for the time being, the Dutch midfielder of OM and Hellas Verona have not found a financial agreement, which puts the transaction on stand-by at the moment. great displeasure of Pablo Longoria and Igor Tudor.

Kevin Strootman still has a year of contract at Olympique de Marseille and probably the former AS Roma midfielder does not intend to make the slightest salary effort to join Hellas Verona. Despite this big difficulty, OM are still confident about the finalization of this deal according to La Provence, which confirms the information from Fabrizio Romano and Gianluca Di Marzio. Earlier, Italian transfer window specialists claimed that negotiations were not broken between the different parties and that Olympique de Marseille still had hopes of signing Darko Lazovic for the next three years. There is no doubt that Pablo Longoria had to make efforts to try to get Kevin Strootman to pass the pill. In the unanimous opinion of specialists in Italy, the Serb represents a very good pickaxe for OM. He is used to the position of left piston, knows Igor Tudor and has a technical quality clearly above the average. With this player, OM would certainly hold the counterpart of Jonathan Clauss on the left. We understand better why this is the priority of the Marseille club, ahead of the Portuguese Nuno Tavares (Arsenal).
